Mother of God "Burning Bush" or "Unburnt Bush" Orthodox Icon
This icon is based on the Old Testament miracle in which Moses witnessed the burning bush. In this miracle the bush was burning, yet not consumed and it is from this that the Orthodox church sees a typology of the Mother of God. This idea follows in that the Mother of God gave birth to the Savior, yet remained a virgin. The diamonds in this icon are pictured as red and green, red representing the fire and green the bush.
You showed Moses, O Christ God, An image of your most pure Mother
In the bush that burned yet was not consumed, For she herself was not consumed, When she received in her womb the fire of divinity!
She remained incorrupt after her pure childbearing!
By her prayers, O greatly merciful One, Deliver us from the flame of passions, And preserve your people from all harm!
